CORVARA

Corvara di Beverino is a charming hamlet of Beverino in Val di Vara, about 300 m above sea level, and surrounded by the mountain peaks of Appennino Ligure.

The village of Corvara proudly exhibits its antiquity and in spring and summer is an ideal destination for tourists who love the relaxing atmosphere of the countryside and the closeness to the sea of the Cinque Terre.

The first citation of Corvara di Beverino dates back to 1077 in a document of the emperor Henry VI of the Holy Roman Empire.

Corvara di Beverino was under the dominion of the Estensi family. It was entrusted as fief to a local lord, who also gained control over Ponzo’, a village of Riccò del Golfo di Spezia. In 1163, Corvara di Beverino was yielded to the Malaspina family (Obizzo Malaspina) during the imperial reign of Frederick II and in 1211 it was sold to the Republic of Genoa. In 1216, Corvara di Beverino once again came under the rule of the Malaspina family causing a siege by the Republic of Genoa until the dispute was resolved in 1216.

It subsequently became the possession of the Fieschi family (1271) and then, following the destiny of the Republic of Genoa, it became an important village in the east Liguria region until 1458 when it was annexed to Spezia.

Corvara hosts the remains of an ancient castle resided by the famous cartographer Matteo Vinzoni of the Republic of Genoa, local royalty, and the high society of Corvara and of Ponzo’. After some negotiation with the Republic of Genoa, the castle was sold for the sum of 1.800 lire to the Malaspina family (Obizzo and Guglielmo).

A key attraction to visit is the church of San Michele Arcangelo. As stated by the plaque placed on the edifice it was constructed in 1300. The structure that stands today is the result of an enlargement made in the eighteenth century.

Another important site, built in the sixteenth century and situated along a cross-road to Corvara,  is the “Santuario della Madonna del Trezzo”. Inside, on the main altar, is a fresco painting dated 1586 of the “Madonna con Bambino”, together with Saint Lucia and Saint Apollonia.
